We all hate to see our children in pain. If your child is suffering from a dental emergency, we are trained to help alleviate your child’s pain and manage the crisis.
When an emergency occurs, it’s essential to seek treatment for your child as soon as possible. A quick response can help our doctors save the tooth, if possible, and reduce the risk of more extensive dental care.
Pediatric dental emergencies can include:
If your child fractures a tooth, then gather any fragments you can find and store them in a clean container of milk or saliva of the child that lost the tooth. Never use water to transport a broken or knocked-out tooth. You must visit the dentist immediately to prevent infection and other complications brought on by chipped or knocked-out teeth. If the tooth is knocked out, only touch the crown of the tooth and not the root. The dentist will be able to repair your child’s tooth or fix it with a crown.
